Classic styling and high performance add up to an outstanding sport watch for your land or sea adventures. This two-tone automatic watch, from Invicta's Pro Diver series, places a large round stainless steel case on a robust steel bracelet with gold-plated center links. The electric blue dial is designed for quick and easy read-off, even in low light conditions. It offers three-hand function with luminous hands and markers and a magnified date display at the three o'clock position. The detailed hands, in Mercedes, sword, and breguet-style logo shapes, add a note of distinction. The dial is capped with a resilient mineral crystal and framed by a blue unidirectional rotating steel bezel with goldtone markings and coin edge detailing. This watch is driven by a Japanese automatic movement, which is visible through the see-through skeleton case back. It is rated water resistant to a full 200 meters.
Pro Diver Collection
Plunge into any horizon using the steadfast guidance of the Invicta Pro Diver. Stylishly classic, internal workings are forged with variations of either Swiss chronograph or 21-jewel automatic movements and willingly navigate in depths up to 300 meters. Built with confident prowess, the fortitude with which these timepieces function makes the Pro Diver the quintessential in performance.
Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.
Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).
With its most inspired creations yet, Invicta demonstrates its technical and design prowess, offering timepieces of style for extreme value.
"We have long held firm to the belief that supremely crafted timepieces can be offered for extremely modest sums. It is the founding principle of our flagship and the radical notion that still drives us today. By being true to our convictions, we will continue to turn the balance of power, and deliver true Swiss luxury to anyone who desires it. Let all those who possess our timepieces and pass through our doors witness the quality, value and care in every piece we create, and the spirit of never-ending possibilities in everything we do."
These are the words that greet visitors and motivate team members inside the Invicta Watch Group's new worldwide headquarters. Emblazoned in stainless steel, it has been the Invicta message since Day One.
With each new timepiece, the company sends up a flare for those looking to be defined not by how much they spend, but how wisely they spend. With its strong collections, the gutsy Swiss brand is guaranteed to keep attracting followers.
It takes years of training and a great deal of pride to achieve glorious Swiss timepieces by hand. But it takes guts and the courage of your convictions to make those timepieces affordable for everyone who appreciates them.
At our Swiss workshops, we mix time-honored traditions with a little bit of horse sense every single day to produce the greatest values in the watch-making world.

But in spite of that, indeed partially as a consequence of that, this is a very handsome, solid watch. It's not some quartz-powered, pot-metal knockoff. Notably, it is powered by the well-regarded, mid-range Seiko NH35A automatic watch movement. It has a solid reputation for reliability and accuracy. It features manual winding and hacking, both nice upgrades from the entry level Seiko 5 field watch I bought for about the same price. This quality movement is rarely found on time pieces retailing for less than $300.
The magnified date complication is nicely executed and the iridescent blue dial plays off the light beautifully. The uni-directional bezel is a marvel of precision. 120 clicks - not one more or one less - will bring it precisely back to the 12 o'clock position. An easy to overlook feature is the quick set date change, which means you don't have to move the hour hand twice around the dial to advance the date. The trick is to be aware that the screw down crown has three distinct detents. The first allows hand-winding of the main spring. The third is for setting the time. But there's a middle setting that's easy to miss if you don't know it's there. It allows you to change the date with a counter-clockwise twist.
One other note about the crown. This is a diver's watch and in order to achieve that 200m water resistance rating, the crown stem has internal seals that engage only when the crown is fully screwed down. Hence the term "screw down crown". This feature is standard for just about every true diver's watch on the market. I'm noticing that some of the less favorable Amazon user reviews complain of water infiltration, sometimes with little more than splashing around in shallow water. Given the way this watch is built and my own experience with it (showering daily, fresh and salt water swimming), that's frankly difficult to believe. *Unless* the user neglects to screw that crown all the way in. In which case water will most definitely penetrate the case. For non-divers, that extra step might seem like a needless complication for an everyday watch. Which is a fair concern. If you think that level of user engagement will be too much for you, my advice is twofold: 1) you'll be much happier with a non-diver mechanical watch and 2) don't ever buy a convertible.
And finally there's the transparent exhibition case back. allowing you to see the inside of that intricate, jeweled mechanism. An honest to gosh mechanical movement is a rarity in modern, mass market wrist watches. Position that engraved rotor until you can see a tiny gear that's a blur of movement. Look closer and you'll see it's rapidly switching rotational direction. That's the balance wheel. It incrementally apportions the stored tension on the main spring though the escapement to the rest of the clock train; running the hour, minute and second hands, as well as the date complication. Invicta allows the owner the sublime pleasure of viewing that exquisite mechanism beating away - hour after hour, day after day, year after year.
Circling back to my initial point: you need to understand that watch aficionados sneer at this Invicta because it's such an obvious copy of the Rolex. And to be fair, they probably have a point that if you're going to hew this closely to the Submariner format, it would have been nice if Invicta had tossed in a little design variation just to show some semblance of originality.
But all that is largely irrelevant if you're buying this watch to please yourself. Because here's the thing: this is a legitimately attractive, high quality wrist watch. Most of us - myself included - will never be able to afford a Rolex. But the Invicta gives me a tremendous amount of personal satisfaction owning and wearing a fine mechanical timepiece. If you're on a budget and out to impress your affluent watch snob friends, this isn't the watch for you. But if you're on a budget and out to impress yourself, this thing is a bargain.
FIt and finish on the case, bezel, and face are impeccable. The automatic workings have proven incredibly accurate and have kept within a second or two over the last week. The only other automatic watch I owned (a Diesel) was very inaccurate and a general PITA to maintain. This has been pure joy! The bracelet is comfortable and easy to remove the links yourself. It gets compliments all the time thanks to it's classic styling. The date window is super easy to read with the magnifying bubble on the lens. My eyes, now that I'm getting older, have a really hard time reading the date window on my other watches but this one is a dream and no problem to read. The sweeping second hand is great fun to watch in action. The rear window allows easy viewing of the inner working and especially the winding pendulum.
For around $75 this watch is a stupendous value and I highly recommend it! I own at least a couple dozen watches including some other Invicta models and I have to admit that I feel horrible for neglecting other watches I've recently purchased but I can't bring myself to not wear this beauty. In time I suppose the sizzle will lessen and I will add some of my other watches into my daily wear rotation but for now I'm simply in love with this watch. It's the perfect gift for the guy in your life. I can't thank my wife enough for getting me this fantastic time piece!
